Nicole Smith, LPN

"I have known since I was very young that I wanted to be a nurse. I have been working as a caregiver for family and close friends since I was in my early teens. After my son was born I knew that if I wanted to ever become a nurse, now was the time.

Nurse Nancy,  RN

"I was always interested in pursuing a medical career, but ended up enjoying a 20-year stint in the military. After retiring, I wanted to go into a profession that would help people in a more “hands on” manner, but also have flexibility in work hours, and nursing fit the bill perfectly."



Kopila Sangroula, RN

Why did you become a nurse?

C.  My greatest desire is to help people and I enjoy being around to assist people in their time of need.  I believe that there is as much “art" in good nursing as there is science, and I get great internal satisfaction from building my skills and making a difference.
